Category as Meta Data Selector in Posts block?



New Member
Hi all! Very new to Elementor and excited to move an existing layout over. I'm using the Posts block to create a grid on the front page showing four columns with image, title, post meta, and excerpt. I'm stymied on this: there are only four fields available built-in for post meta: Author, Date, Time, and Comments. Where is category? Is there no way to display category as post meta? Better still, custom fields? In the attached image you can see what I'm trying to accomplish, circled is the category on the current theme.
Thanks in advance for any guidance! :)

I am looking for the exact same thing. Did you have any joy with this, before I pursue other avenues such as messing with the code...
